Life is a lot about balance, isn't it? So often I feel like I'm on a tightrope, and working without a net.
Our Stake President called last night to let us know that Buddy is coming home from his mission on Monday, after only 5 months. We don't really know why, though he has been struggling with some health issues.
This is one of those times that I struggle as a blogger and as a mom. My blogger self wants to be real and and let people in on the struggles that are going on inside of me, vent a little, and get some advice. Maybe even talk about the guilt I feel that I didn't do a better job as a mom. (I mean surely there was something I didn't teach - didn't say - didn't do the way I should have, right?)
The mom part of me feels loyal to protecting my child, and not just blasting his issues and feelings out into space for all to see.
I suppose there will come a balance of some sort. But today while I'm having trouble finding that balance, I'd probably better err on the side of less is more.
It's painful in a lot of ways, but we're going to get through it.
